Governor Skills Audit

Effective governance requires a board with a range of knowledge, skills, perspectives and backgrounds. This enables governors and trustees to ask the right questions, analyse data and have discussions which create robust accountability for school leaders.

No individual will have all the necessary skills and competencies; the board is a team and this audit is a way of assessing the overall breadth and depth of the board’s skills and knowledge.

The audit also offers boards an opportunity to evaluate their experience and understanding of the community they serve and their capacity to lead an inclusive culture.
